By Land Line staff | 12/30/2015

The deadline for the 2016 OOIDA Mary Johnston Scholarship Program is fast approaching. All applications from students must be turned in by Feb. 1, 2016. Children, grandchildren and legal dependents of OOIDA members are eligible for the scholarships.

Founded in 1998, the OOIDA Scholarship Fund awards five scholarships every year: one $2,000 scholarship and four $1,000 scholarships. Students must submit an application, a 500-word essay on the topic indicated on the application, and transcripts from high school or an institution of higher learning.

Winners will be notified by letter after the spring meeting of the OOIDA Board of Directors in 2016. Tax-deductible donations to the OOIDA Scholarship Fund can be sent to OOIDA Foundation Inc., P.O. Box 1000, Grain Valley, Mo., 64029.
